When I first started reading my now-husband’s comics, long before I had a longbox to call my own, I came across his old Marvel Conan issues, many of them featuring Red Sonja. He quickly told me to forget that Brigitte Nielsen movie, and read them for myself; thus, another fandom was born.
Folks, today is truly a Christmas gift from Dark Horse and Dynamite: Gail Simone, Jim Zub, and Dan Panosian have come together on Conan vs. Red Sonja, with Issue #1 hitting on January 14th.
According to Dark Horse/Dynamite, the story will span multiple eras in both Conan’s and Red Sonja’s lives, as they become comrades to take down a sorcerer-priest bent on creating a dark new age in Hyborian warfare!
So, it is Thulsa Doom? Kulan Gath? Someone entirely new? Only time will tell. I’m going to be counting days. In the meantime, check out the sneak peek Dark Horse and Dynamite are taunting us with.
CONAN RED SONJA #1 is on sale January 14th. Retailers, final order cutoff is Monday, December 22nd.
